    Route Summary

    Before moving forward with the trip overview, let’s look into the routes you’ll take during the journey.

    First, when you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport, one of our staff members will welcome you and escort you to the Kathmandu hotel. After a short briefing about the overall trip, you’ll have the rest of the evening to yourself.

    You’ll begin your journey by boarding a flight to Pokhara. Upon landing,  you’ll drive to Phedi and commence your trek from there. The first stop is the Australian Camp. You’ll reach here by crossing Dhampus and Pothana. Now, you’ll hike for two hours and then take a one-hour drive to reach Sarangkot. After enjoying the views at Sarangkot, you’ll trek back to Pokhara and end your journey with a flight back to Kathmandu.

    When Is The Best Time?

    The Short Annapurna Trek is a beautiful journey that will take you away from bustling city life and give you a break to relax. Now, it’s time to see when you should embark on this journey.

    As it is a short trek and happens at a comfortable height, it is feasible throughout the entire year. Hence, you can sign up for it at any time that works best for you. Having said that, like most treks, the best time for this one is spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). 

    The spring brings the blooming of wildflowers. With the pleasant weather, it is the loveliest season for the hike. The red and pink shades of rhododendron blossoms make the setting more pretty and truly remarkable. In contrast, however, fall brings a feeling of newness and a clear climate after the storm's downpour. The mountain vistas come to life even more at this time as the skies remain clear and blue.

    How Difficulty Is This Adventure?

    After reading this far into the trip overview, you might be curious about the hike's difficulty level.

    Well, we’ll cover it now in this section.

    Since the Short Annapurna Trek is an easy hike, you do not need to worry about having any kind of trouble en route. It is a low-altitude trek; thus, there's very little chance of getting altitude sickness. The journey progresses gently, giving you ample time to adjust to the environment. As a whole, the trek is feasible for everyone, even if you’re a beginner with no prior trekking experience.

    Alternative Trek

    If this trek doesn’t suit your preferences, we also have another exciting trip for you to look into:

    The Mardi Himal Trek is the first package that you can look into. The 9-Day journey offers a more secluded and off-the-beaten-path experience, with fewer trekkers on the trail. You can opt for this trek if you have more days to add to your adventure and want to walk on a less crowded trail.

    The next one is the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking. It is an 8-Day journey that will give you a taste of the Annapurna region. The highlight of the trip is the hike to Poon Hill. Here, you’ll catch a beautiful sunrise and witness the panoramic views of the Annapurna ranges and other mountains.

    Regardless of the trekking package you choose, we assure you that it’ll be the best holiday of your life. Come and explore the beauty of the Himalayas with us.
